HC Deb 21 March 1985 vol 75 c594W
21. Mr. Hayes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is satisfied with the level of both private and public investment in the infrastructure; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

As I told my hon. Friend in answer to a similar question on 24 January, total capital investment in this country is already running at a record level. The recently published public expenditure White Paper (Cmnd. 9428), shows that the public sector is spending substantial sums on the nation's infrastructure.
